Foothill Gold Line: Notice of Rail Grinding


NOISY RAIL OPERATIONS BETWEEN SAN DIMAS CANYON RD. AND FULTON RD.
IN THE RAILROAD CORRIDOR (CITY OF LA VERNE)
MAY 20 - JUNE 5, 2024

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
As part of the 9.1-mile Foothill Gold Line light rail project, crews will be working project wide within the
railroad corridor to perform rail grinding operations. Rail grinding requires a large, specialized machine to
drive along the new light rail tracks in both directions and grind the surface of the rails to their final shape.
No street closures will be needed for this work, but this work is noisy and can cause vibrations. The noise
and vibration levels will be monitored during these activities to ensure they stay below required levels.

WHEN
Beginning Monday, May 20th, ongoing intermittently thru Wednesday, June 5th (excluding holidays).
• Crews plan to work during the hours of 7:00 AM - 3:30 PM, Monday - Saturday. NOTE: Occasional longer
work hours and construction on Sundays may be performed during the dates listed above.

TRAFFIC ADVISORIES
• No street closures will be needed to support these operations.
• Other closures may be in place for additional ongoing operations. Please safely follow all signage and
any/all detour routes.

NOTE TO RESIDENTS / BUSINESS OWNERS
Noise from the rail grinder is expected. Noise and vibration will be monitored.
